think everything is about washington, but the obama administration -- in aid to.3 billion the generals? >> despite that for sure. they gave morsi $8 billion in one year. let's put that in some perspective. yes, it matters. the u.s. doesn't have levers and it does influence the generals. arguably in the first transition after mubarak was overthrown, they influence them to go with morsi winning. but the u.s. does not have that much leverage except to push them perhaps to a quicker transition toward democracy. .> thank you for joining us >> my pleasure. >> today the investigation continues into what caused an asiana airlines flight to crash land in san francisco on saturday. reports indicate that the plane tootraveling too low and slow when it hit the seawall before landing. the pilots' experience is being questioned. >> look at that one. >> the final moments of flight an amateur by cameraman across the san francisco bay. >> oh, my god. oh, my god. oh, my god. >> this is where it ended up. the smoking wreck. fire still burning inside. was no warning for the passengers. they jumped from wh

of president obama. of folks think that president obama put this on the back burner, there is that phrase again, after an initial effort in the first term. we recall george mitchell in the first administration, and nothing happened with that. , not a lotpped aside happened after that. reasons,ver reason or john kerry has jumped in and to try to make something happen here. how do you grade the obama administration about the seriousness between these talks? think they are totally committed for the search. thereatly appreciate president goes the effort, secretary of state hillary clinton, and we appreciate all their efforts and we view them as partners in the search for historic peace. during the first term, the administration tried a certain way to get the peace. we froze settlement construction for 10 months. hillary clinton called it unprecedented and it was to give the palestinians back to the negotiating table. they did not avail themselves of that opportunity. since then, they have not been able to return to the negotiating table. the secretary kerry has very intensely fought to

look at recent events in the middle east and afghanistan and the obama administration's response. mark halperin is joined by andrea mitchell of nbc news and peter baker of the "new york times." >> look, i think the overriding priority for the obama national security team is really one of stability, trying to keep the relationship from rupturing and trying to keep violence from spreading even worse than it has in the streets of cairo. you don't see them out there banging the drums and denouncing with full fury what's happening there. you don't see them criticizing even president morsi with full... either. they're trying very much to play a quiet game. president obama hasn't said one word in public about this yet. he's issued only a written statement expressing deep disappointment. his spokesman has called for calm and condemned violence. >> we continue tonight with the ongoing saga of n.s.a. leaker edward snowden. i'll be talking with people on both sides of that debate from the intelligence community to privacy advocates. philip mudd,otenberg, jesselyn radack and timothy murphy. >> and

that arose in washington before our stories began was about the fact that the obama administration is trying to criminalize investigative journalism by going through the emails and phone records of a.p. reporters, accusing a fox news journalist of the theory you just embraced, being a co-conspirator with felonies, in felonies for working with sources. if you want to embrace that theory, it means every investigative journalist in the united states who works with their sources, who receives classified information is a criminal. and it's precisely those theories and precisely that climate that has become so menacing in the united states. it's why "the new yorker's" jane mayer said investigative reporting has come to a "standstill," her word, as a result of the theories that you just referenced. >> well, the question of who's a journalist mayaye up to a debate with regard to what you're doing. and of course, anybody who's watching this understands i was asking a question, that question has been raised by lawmakers as well. i'm not embracing anything. but, obviously i take your point. >> t

parliamentary and presidential and we think that's a good thing >> woodruff: so far, the obama administration said it will maintain u.s. aid to egypt. and in a bid to bolster egypt's economy, saudi arabia and the united arab emirates announced today a total of $8 billion in assistance. >> ifill: still to come on the newshour: political intrigue in the lone star state; artists who are also entrepreneurs; the b.p. settlement dispute; the immigration debate goes to the house; and portraits of american nurses. but first, with the other news of the day, here's hari sreenivasan. >> sreenivasan: democrats in congress issued a warning to house republicans today on immigration reform. they insisted they will not accept any bill unless it provides a path to citizenship for 11 million people living in the u.s. illegally. the bill that passed the senate last month does just that. but in the house, speaker john boehner said the senate measure is still weak on what he considers the most fundamental point. >> the first big step that you have to have is serious border security because without
